Dynamic is a Member of the United Pallet Network System – How Does it Work?
Dynamic is a member of the United Pallet Network System which operates a simple and effective hub and spoke distribution system, designed specifically for palletised freight. We are one of a national network of over 80 member depots that collect and deliver freight every day from across the UK, Eire and Europe, before transporting it to a central hub.
The UPN hub is centrally located in Staffordshire. This location provides superb transport links to the rest of the UK, ensuring we minimise the number of road miles travelled by the members which maintains our green credentials. We work in harmony with each other and the hub to ensure peak efficiency, whilst maintaining our industry leading service levels.
How the UPN Process Works
- Dynamic collect freight daily from our allocated postcode area and consolidate the freight onto trunk vehicles. We then travel to the central hub, where every pallet is checked and scanned in. Each pallet is then unloaded and sorted into specific delivery bays.
- The outbound freight is then loaded onto the vehicles of the member responsible for delivery. It is carefully checked and every pallet is scanned out of the hub.
- Freight is transported to the local delivery depot on their trunk vehicles. It is unloaded, checked and sorted into delivery areas, ensuring that requests for time specific deliveries are serviced accordingly.
- All pallets are then delivered by a total fleet of over 4,000 local delivery and collection vehicles. Delivery drivers use the latest XDA systems to capture digital proof of deliveries that are posted online within seconds of delivery. Links to proof of delivery can be emailed automatically to customers or depots as required, using UPN’s advanced web-based systems.
